The claws are out in our concept Apple iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3 rumble, but which of the upcoming handsets will emerge victorious?

While the fanboys continue to drool over the latest smartphone releases, behind closed doors in Cupertino, California, and Samsung Town, Seoul, two tech heavyweights are gearing up for an ugly battle: one, a phoenix that has risen from the ashes and grabbed all corners of the electronics industry by the balls, another, a Korean bulldog eager to square up to the mightiest of challengers.

We are, of course, talking about Apple and Samsung, and their suspected upcoming handsets the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3.

And as we venture deeper into 2012, talk of both devices continues to gather momentum. We've rummaged through the speculation and 'trusted sources' to piece together how both handsets could take shape. 

Release date: 

 

Respected Japanese Apple blog Macotakara has said that it has received word from "Asian sources" who claim that the iPhone 5 will land in September or October 2012 under the moniker of the ‘new iPhone’ which, if true, would fit with last year’s arrival of the Apple iPhone 4S, unveiled by Apple on October 4 and subsequently released on October 14.

"According to Asian reliable source, next iPhone will be released in September or October, and this cycle seems to be kept for years," read a translated portion of the report.

Meanwhile, recent reports have suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S3 release date is set for April 2012.

Specs:

Despite the ongoing legal battles between the two companies over repeated patent infringements, Samsung looks set to continue its role as a component supplier for Apple’s iKit, with the Korean firm reportedly agreeing to provide the quad-core A6 chips to feature within the iPhone 5.

“Apple has been in talks with Samsung over shipment of its A6 quad-core mobile processor (AP) chips to be used in the next iPhone,” an insider has claimed. They added: “It appears that Apple clearly has concluded that Samsung remains a critical business partner.”

Continuing the Apple iPhone 5 specs rumours, further reports have suggested Apple is to shave millimeters off the form of its next-generation handset thanks to the introduction of a new streamlined Sony camera sensor.

Meanwhile, the latest Samsung Galaxy S3 rumours - which come courtesy of gadget blog Boy Genius Report - suggest that the iPhone 4S rival will land with a 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor and Google’s latest mobile operating system, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
